Current and Recent Funerals 2019

I want to share an amazing story with you. When I first came to work at Magnolia Cemetery thirty-seven years ago many achievement goals were already set in place. If only you could have seen what we were facing. I thought how can we make a turnaround like this possible.

Year after year the kindness of lot owners and friends of Magnolia have helped us with their generous donations in making many of those goals a reality.  

We are approaching four years of trying to raise funds to repair the termite damage to the plantation house. You have helped us generate well over half the amount it will take to accomplish these repairs.

I am happy to announce that with your help we have closed a contract with Meadors Inc. to complete these repairs. Although there is a large amount still need to totally cover the cost of the repairs the work is already in progress.

We have recently granted exclusive permission to Bulldog Tours, Inc. to operate nightly tours in Magnolia Cemetery. These tours are strictly walking tours and last about 90 minutes each. Bulldog Tours will be generating a portion of their proceeds to help financially repair the Plantation House.

If you want to help the Magnolia Cemetery Trust repair the Plantation House, which houses the administrative offices for the cemetery, you now have another way to contribute. To purchase tickets please CLICK HERE: .
